How to Get Firefox’s PDF Viewer in Opera Browser

Google Chrome was the first browser to add PDF viewer right in the browser to view PDF files. Last year Mozilla has also added PDF viewer support to its browser Firefox. What is great with this feature is that it helps you view PDF files online without downloading them to your computer.
